Judgmental Jesus
Judgmental Jesus Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, 9/30/18   According to the World Christian Encyclopedia, there are six blocks of Christianity: Independents, Protestants, Marginals, Orthodox, Catholics and Anglicans.  Spanning 238 different countries in total, they compose over 33,000 different denominations. Likely, the first denomination began in the 9th chapter of Mark’s gospel.  The disciples are...
Growing Younger  Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, 9/23/18 Ministry was not going well for the disciples.  With their efforts thwarted, their attempts frustrated, their labors futile, they no longer felt celebrated for their good deeds.  Without the pats on the back and their names in the paper, the disciples turned to infighting, jockeying for position...
Burned Out Savior
Burned Out Savior Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, 9/9/18 Jesus Christ is not his first and last name.  Instead, affirming him as both Son of God and Son of Man simultaneously, he is a comingling of divinity and humanity.  But when it comes to Christology, or the study of Christ, the Church’s scholarship has focused...
Belonging to God
Belonging to God Sermon by Rev.

The Sinful Side of David

The Welcome Table
The Welcome Table Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs Jesus had already been out on preaching tour in Galilee.  Between pulpits, he turned Simon’s house into an infirmary and tussled with a strongman, stilled a raging storm and unchained a demoniac, stopped a hemorrhage and brought a little girl back from the dead.  The Disciples, back...
Insignificant Ministries
Insignificant Ministries Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, 6/13/18 Of the Synoptics, Mark is the oldest gospel.  Matthew and Luke must have used the original manuscript as source material when they penned their narratives about Jesus.  And while they borrowed story and sentence unedited from Mark, today’s text was different.  There was something about the parable...
Abide In My Love
    “Abide In My Love” / John 15:9-17 Sermon by Pastor Mark Siler, 5/2/18 Our country is founded on the notion that we all are created with the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  While Jefferson and his cohorts may have been wise in recognizing this as a basis for...
